New Crew

New Crew is starter kit for beginner sailors. It comes with three illustrated pocket guides that cover sailing basics, signal flags, and sailing knots. It also includes rope to practice your knots, flash cards to help memorize the signal flags, and a burgee (club flag) that can be flown to show the owners affiliation with the New Crew program. All this is packed in a handy wooden carrying case, whose handles double as a place to practice tying knots.
